Since I last posted spring pictures the flowering crab apple trees have been giving us a show.
That's the one in our yard. The white flowers under the tree is Candy Tuft ... it is just beginning to blossom. I like that it's an evergreen ground cover the rest of the year. And the pansies are beginning to bloom their little heads off after very little show through the winter.
These trees loose their blossoms one petal at a time. It looks as if it snowed under the white ones.
The Red Bud trees have just begun.
They are one of my favorite trees. If anything ever happens to the crab apple in our yard that's what what will replace it.
Yesterday late afternoon when I took this picture, the light was such that the trunks of the evergreens were violet as well.
And then there's the grass ... or I should say grasses. The fairways of the golf course have Zoysia grass which turns brown with the first frost, but greens up within a few days ... that will happen soon. The grass on our grounds and most everywhere else stays green all winter. Right now the dandelions and violets growing in it are making a wonderful show.
I love spring and am looking forward to what's still to come ... the dogwoods and azaleas are the next to make a spectacular show.
